I didn’t expect was the sheer joy I would have volunteering – and the start of a tradition that continues to this day. We all look forward to seeing our “Circus Friends” every year. The yearly Volunteer Dinner feels like a family reunion. I have made many wonderful friends among the other volunteers who are now a part of my everyday life.
We’ve got some incredible circus acts lined up: Roxane Gilliand on the Swinging Trapeze (without a net!), Yoyo the clown, The Flying Wallendas on the high-wire, The Alanian Riders who will perform acrobatics on, off, and under galloping horses, trained pigs, The St. Louis Arches, and trampoline acrobatics.
The magic of circus should be accessible to ALL! In that spirit of inclusiveness, we created the “Share the Circus” ticket donation program.
“Hospital clowning?! What’s that?” . . . is often the first response when I tell people about my job. So, let me tell you a little bit about our “Clowns on Call” program and our work with our primary partner, SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.
There's a lot more change happening at Circus Flora: a new site for our Big Top, new office space, and some very exciting new productions on the horizon. Though this is keeping us all very busy, it can also be important to step back once in a while and keep a perspective on why we are doing what we are doing.
Greetings and welcome to our new Circus Flora website. We hope you like what you see here and will visit often to learn about what’s going on with St. Louis’ own world-renowned Circus Flora!
The venerable Circus Flora brings fresh acts, a sparkling new lead character and a charming story with a touch of Wes Anderson whimsy to its new permanent home in Grand Center. The result is a delightfully entertaining and fun to follow along mystery.
